He [Sri Easwaran] kept a notebook on his altar with the names of people who had special needs. His alter had pictures and small statues of great spiritual figures like Sri Krishna, Shiva, Jesus, the Buddha, the Star of David, Sri Ramakrishna, St. Francis, Gandhi, Genesha, Hunuman, and many others. "Our spiritual folklore is that you can bring an image to life with the quality of devotion laid at its feet. It is a powerful principle. I keep this book with the names of all the people who need help and place it where all these live forces are operating. Everyone believes in the law of relativity. We can learn to believe in the law of unity, too."
